Hurricane Ian strengthened into an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 storm and roared to the brink of Category 5 status, its maximum sustained winds blasting at 155 mph as the west coast of Florida braced for landfall Wednesday afternoon.

More than 140,000 homes and businesses in South Florida already were dark early Wednesday, according to the tracking website Power outages should be expected statewide, Florida Power & Light warned.
